I started writing in 2005 when the Lord called me to do so, even though I’d never had a prior desire to write. My first two books were published in 2007, then four books in the Love Finds You line, then my current, three-book historical romance series, Love Blossoms in Oregon, with David C Cook. Recently God gave me a new idea, and that idea is carrying me into new and exciting territory. Last fall I spoke to my current publisher about writing two novellas that would fill in the time gap between my trade novels. BLOWING ON DANDELIONS released last June, WISHING ON BUTTERCUPS this February, and Dreaming on Daisies Oct. 1. All take place in Baker City, Oregon, with the same cast of characters, and I found readers becoming impatient at the distance between books. Cook was willing to print the novella in eBook only, but I wanted print books for my readers who don’t own tablets, so with Cook’s blessing, I moved forward alone. In early March, FORGET ME NOT, a 160 page novella, was finished and ready to present to Amazon. It can be read at any point in the series, but fits perfectly between book…

Patricia W. Fischer | It’s March. How are you Holding Up?
Author Guest / March 21, 2014

Like many of you out there, I made new years resolutions, some of which I’ve kept into February and others I ruined by the first week of January. (Damn you chocolate!) Of course, my goals were to improve my health, increase my completed published works catalogue, and bring about world peace…okay maybe not that last one. Maybe more getting all my laundry done on the same day, but it’s a goal. Now it’s March. I don’t know about you, but there are days where I don’t want to keep my resolutions anymore. It’s not that I like the piles of clean laundry on my couch or the fact the kids keep having sandwiches for dinner, but geez, this keeping the resolutions list going can be exhausting some days. In my first book, WEIGHTING FOR MR. RIGHT, the heroine Megan Sayla starts her year off by hiding out in the men’s bathroom of a carwash after running away from her own wedding. With no real plan, all she knows is her life can’t keep going on they way she’s allowed it. Change must occur, otherwise she’ll make the worst mistake of her life and spend the rest of her days trying…
